Making connections with my students through literature and writing is one of many reasons why I love being a teacher. Every student possesses a unique story and voice, and it is important to me that I provide a safe space for each to be heard. Students are the heart of my classroom; I take time to earn their trust, then I incorporate writers and texts into my lessons that pique their interests or speak to their circumstances. I love showing students the relevance of literature to their lives! It is so rewarding when that realization transforms into a passion for reading! As for writing, I make a point to listen to my students, to hear how they think and feel about the world. I give them ample opportunities to write because their voices deserve to be heard. It is such a pleasure to help students develop their own unique form of self-expression, and I love when students feel comfortable enough to share their thoughts and ideas aloud. 


My passion for education began long ago and has increased tenfold over time. There is no other profession I would rather pursue, and I am honored to be part of the William & Reed family, a family whose passion for education is as deep as mine.
